Spec Resources
Free work or Spec (speculative) work can be defined as, "Providing design services to develop creative concept work for free (or for a nominal fee) as part of a new business pitch."
 
The RGD Code of Ethics prevents RGD Members from doing work on spec.
 
Below are resources explaining why doing work on spec is detrimental to professional designers AND their clients.
